Spectrum demolition in progress 3/1/11. Facing west from 11th St. The Spectrum was not a classic old barn like the "Original Six" arenas or the St. Louis Arena (Chicago Stadium was the only one of those that I ever set foot in). However, it is the arena in which I have seen the most games. I saw my first NHL game there (Flyers vs. Montreal October 1979), had a 10 game Flyers ticket plan for the 1984-85 and 1985-86 seasons (3rd level for the whopping price of $9 per seat!), and was a Phantoms season ticket holder from 1996-2003. R.I.P.
